April 2019

Time sure does fly by when you are truly having fun! The past several weeks have been just that at McAllister ES - lots of learning and lots of fun/engagement. Just this past weekend, nearly 200 people flooded MES for our 2nd Annual #MESrocks Day. The turnout was incredible and the campus has never looked better! A BIG thank you to all of our support that made this possible, as we all know - many hands make light work!

Opportunities for engagement are abundant at McAllister ES, this Thursday our Fine Arts department hosts their 1st Annual Fine Arts Night. This night will feature drama performances, choral performances, opportunities to view your child's 2D & 3D artwork and more. Please make plans to attend this event, you will not want to miss it. Additionally, our Kindergarten will be hosting their annual orientation night for rising Kindergarten students beginning at 5PM followed by Fine Arts night at 6PM. Lastly, our Book Fair will be open for parent/student access during this event as well as during your child's recess & lunch times.

This month kicks off an opportunity to assess our students on their knowledge of grade level standards in grades (3-5). Students will be assessed beginning next week with the Georgia Milestones Assessment. At this time we will not be accepting volunteers or lunch visitors. We will assume our normal routines once we return from Spring Break.
